Calling Lake

Calling Lake aerial photos

This beautiful, charming community is situated on the eastern shore of Calling Lake, known for its tranquility and  recreational pleasures.

The Cree name of the lake, “Kito-Sakahekan” is most famous for the sounds of ice cracking that echo for a long distance.

With a population of 415, the area is rich with culture  mixed with close-knit neighborly charm. In summer, the population swells as a number of lakeside cottagers enjoy their getaway destination.
